||CleanEpisode 003 - Benjamin Edgar||This episode is particularly special for me as I sat down and spoke about all things business with a genuine inspiration of mine, Ben Gott - better known as Benjamin Edgar. In fact, it was Ben who provided the concept for this very podcast via his alternative education and mentoring platform th-oughts. In addition to tackling 21st century education, Ben also founded Boxed Water in 2009, works in venture capital for Wakestream Ventures and can be found producing anything from ball-point pens to marble hangers with his abstract namesake brand, an object company. And then there’s the brilliance!!1, a blog that Ben curates alongside friends Chuck Anderson and Virgil Abloh. With such a varied portfolio, I was incredibly interested to delve deeper into the behind-the-scenes. Fortunately for me, Ben was more than happy to speak with candour about his formative years and the lessons he has learned thus far in his career.||11/6/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEpisode 001 Cole Buxton: Athletic Essentialism||In our new podcast interview series, Andy sits down with clients and individuals in the creative industries we love to work with. Shedding light on the financial and logistics side of their businesses, we look to show the realities, both positive and negative, of the entrepreneur's journey. Sitting down with British menswear designer, Cole Buxton, this episode offers a very unique perspective of a brand and designer still in the formative stages and it will certainly be very interesting to reflect in several years time on what we discuss here.||10/10/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEpisode 002 Nathan Haley||“Just get it done. I like to simplify. There’s a lot of people I’ve helped start a business — they think it’s impossible. It’s just overthinking. What are you waiting for?” I had the good fortune to be able to grab an hour with Nathan Haley (@nathshapes) a few weeks back. Sitting in his barbershop which he co-owns with Tom Burbidge, we talked in great depth about Nathan's personal business journey and his admirable ability to pursue his passions without hesitation.||9/17/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
